Certified Texas Emergency Manager
The Certified Texas Emergency Manager (TEM) program is sponsored by the Emergency Management Association of Texas (EMAT) and administered by the Emergency Administration and Planning (EADP) Program Department of Public Administration at the University of North Texas. Both EMAT and EADP are dedicated to promoting the goals of saving lives and protecting property through application of the four phases of emergency management. One method shown to increase professionalism and recognize the individual who possesses the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience to effectively manage a comprehensive emergency management program is through a rigorous certification program. The TEM is just such a program.
Certification is an indicator of experience, hard work, continuing education, dedication of integrity, and creativity. It is also an assurance that the individual possesses a minimum level of competence and is capable of accomplishing the goals and objectives of comprehensive emergency management in Texas.
